the last presidential -- the first presidential debate. obama now at 45%, romney at 49%. that's a significant shift from before the debate when the president was ahead by eight points, 51% to 43%. but let's dig a little bit deeper right now. this question, all likely voters who were asked answered, obama doesn't know how to turn the economy around, do you agree or disagree? 54% said they agree with that. 44% they say disagree. that sounds like trouble for the president's reelection campaign. >> that does. that number -- first of all, the top-line numbers are surprising because i believe pew has been a pr pre-pro obama poll. pew's been pretty good for obama. the top-line numbers are really surprising. have to see if other polls show the same thing. but as you point out, that's the key number, the economy. how does obama get out of this box of voters being not happy with the economy? but up until now, willing to perhaps give him another chance. i'm surprised. i'm surprised the debate turned things around, if they indeed have, that quickly. obama has two more debates to turn thin
obama in the polls. it remains to be seen whether his debate performance will change the presidential race. >> the european central bank is keeping interest rates at an historic low of 0.75%, resisting pressure for cuts to boost the ailing eurozone economy. the ecb president, mario draghi, said the bank is ready to help buy eurozone bonds to help troubled eurozone member countries. how did the markets react to the latest developments? our correspondent sent us this report from the frankfurt stock exchange. >> inflation has spiked. it is a surprising development. one that has probably prevented the ecb from lowering rates in the eurozone in this month of october. what is more, mario draghi, the president of the ecb, does not expect inflation to come down significantly until next year. still, though the economy is in recession, perhaps rate cut are still a possibility in the eurozone. nonetheless, the situation irritated the markets. the stock market was not able to do much. it did strengthen the euro. that really went up, probably not least because of the statement also by mario draghi
things come to fruition, i think he's going to win the presidential election, i'm pretty happy about it. >> governor rendell we noticed that president obama in the last debate did not look like he's prepared. i doubt we'll see the same performance the next time around. what do you think he needs to do? >> well i think he needs to be more aggressive. first of all he needs to be more passionate about his accomplishments and his accomplishments i think are fairly significant. he took over a country that was on the brink of financial collapse, saved the financial syst system, got the american automobile manufacturing system again, we've had half a million manufacturing jobs, best period of manufacturing growth in a while, housing starts are up, consumer confidence is up, automobile sales are up, rail traffic is up, the unemployment rate is under 8%, we're headed in the right direction and i think he's got to be pretty affirmative about that and i think he also has to call governor romney on the inconsistencies we saw in the first debate but i think jim is right, governor romney terrific per
that for us. >>> well tax reform is unwith with most devisive issues the presidential campaign with both president obama and gop nominee mitt romney sharing drastic revision tax code. the tax foundation examines romney's plan and how it could affect the economy and of course your tax bill. here is the president scott hodge. scott, give us the headline. is it good or bad for the economy. >> it is very good, tracy. when we analyze the plan using sort of a dynamic model, woe find out when you cut individual tax rates across the board and especially cut the corporate rate by 10%age points from 35 to 25% it has very strong economic effect on growth over the long-term. that translates into higher incomes for all americans. so as a result even when you offset some of the spending cuts with base broadening eliminating loopholes everyone ends up better off in the long run with higher incomes and basically higher standards of living. tracy: it is an important point to make he is lowering the rates by 20%, not to 20%. that is gets lost in the press along the way. >> yes it does. tracy: top rate 35%
